Our innovative My Stirling Award is a great way to gain recognition for your extra-curricular achievements. It will give you an edge in the competitive graduate jobs market, as employers look for graduates that have made the most of opportunities at university and outside of their studies.
The Award recognises the wide range of skills and attributes you develop through your extra-curricular activities. You’re probably already undertaking activities that are eligible for the My Stirling Award. Part-time work, volunteering and involvement with university clubs and societies all count. There are three levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold, which will be listed on your degree transcript and will show employers that you’re a candidate to consider.
"I would highly recommend students to take part in the My Stirling Award, and to select the right Award for them depending on their availability and commitment to extra-curricular activities."
The My Stirling Award is a fantastic opportunity to set you out on a personal development path, which you are able to tailor to yourself. There is support and guidance along the way but you are in the driver’s seat and able to take any path you choose.

My Stirling Award has allowed me to grow in confidence and experience. I have participated in activities I may otherwise not have undertaken. Consequently, I feel more equipped to pursue my teaching career and I hope to achieve my full potential.
